Ahh suck.. even a video card with 1gb of onboard RAM aint good.  Does screen resolution affect these scores? (This is my HTPC set to 1920x1080)



nope -both mine are running at 1920*1200 and 1920*1080
dropped the monitor down to 1280*800 - still 5.9

I think I need an SSD...


you could always try turning off write caching for the hard drive.  that supposedly boosts the WEI score.

I have an Intel SSD and that got 7.9...

It seems my HP laptop with an Intel Centrino2 is not that bad - 5.5 while some here with higher end CPUs get pushed down by their HDDs.

Gave that a go, but no change. Still at 5.9.

I think I'll try an SSD once they implement the TRIM command.

TRIM is implemented with Windows 7 already.

Sorry, I meant in the drives.

I didn't think they had implemented it yet. Do you know any that do?

freitasm: Better if you read this blog post by the guys who designed Windows 7 and SSD.


Yeah saw that one.

Basically if the drive doesn't support TRIM, which afaik none of the current batch do, then it just ignores the TRIM command.

i wonder what the Pliant SSD's with 180,000 IOPS and 500MB/sec sustained transfer rates would score then :)

(i also wonder what they are going to cost)

I'm really impressed that anyone running Windows managed to find something to brag about! Way to go!
